After arresting several people, VSP just. packs it in Almost as if there was no good reason for them to be there Then protesters go right back to the Circle. At 2:25am some familiar RPD faces swing by the neighborhood to check things out.
Multiple times while I was filming this I was hit with projectiles and shrapnel from the cannisters and flashbangs detonating all around me. I was in a complete daze and don't remember much of anything after the explosive burst in my face

At least one fire is still burning in the road on Northeast Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Police said protesters lit fires in the area
Those policemen were arms length reach of the both of us. Initial push out was brutal, some girl got hit directly with a flashbang & others beaten and tackled for no reason. Honestly surprised we both weren't attacked there
These are some of the shells from munitions fired on us here at the North East Precinct.
This is a part of the initial push out of the precinct, too. Featuring the first time of multiple that a stranger physically dragged me to safety.,
Even more stun grenades and impact munitions. filming this something ricocheted and hit me right in the temple.
Crowd moved about a block after that last charge an re-regrouped a block down the street, pretty amazing to hold fast. Wonder if these policemen would keep this up with o all that armor, as several people keep inviting them to find out about. No takers yet
Police throwing stun grenades into a group of lawyers and under vehicles.
A standoff between the police and the protesters. Police still giving threats of force after teargassing people and pulling folks out of cars into the gas
